What’s really going to happen, they’re going to get worse?

Corey Maggette was brought in this season to provide some scoring punch for a Bobcats team we all knew was going to struggle putting points up on the board. And when he has been healthy he has scored 15 points a game, although he is shooting just 37.3 percent this season (he is still getting to the line a lot, always one of his great skills).

But Maggette missed 24 games due to injury, missed shootaround Wednesday and now he is done for the season as the team is shutting him down, reports the Charlotte Observer.

Charlotte Bobcats leading scorer Corey Maggette will miss the last 10 games of the season, due to an Achilles tendon injury, coach Paul Silas told the Observer at morning shootaround.

Maggette is under contract for one more years with the Bobcats at $10.9 million.

    Seriously, why isn’t the NBA talking about contracting the Bobcats at the Board of Governors meeting?

      Another high-percentage play could be to quietly ask Mr. Jordan to step aside. I’d bet a dollar the Bobcats are at least a 10 win (lol) team without him.

    The Bobcats really looking for that number 1 pick. You know as long as the team is near the number 1 pick David Stern is going to give it up to MJ. They will get Anthony Davis, and they will suck next year also, but they will get another top 3 pick. MJ is going the OKC way. Not sure if it is possible to get that lucky through the draft though.
